TechWeek Chicago officially kicked off on Friday, July 22nd, and is currently underway. This event is taking place inside The Merchandise Mart in downtown Chicago and will continue until Monday, July 25th.
The TechWeek is an event that showcases technology from local Chicago companies by having several panels and conferences.
There are many different angles and topics being discussed, all with the main focus on technology. As Chicago continues to be a major player in the technology scene with several startups and successful companies, it makes sense to have such an event to showcase both the abundant technology here, while drawing companies to Chicago. It will also draw around 10,000 tech enthusiasts to attend and bring many key players in technology groups and well-known companies.
"Media Tech Connection" will bring more specific updates about some of the main events at TechWeek, as well as a rundown of specific panels and the outcome of the SPARK and technology startup competition.
